With each visit to Maison des Templiers we renovate and restore more rooms. These photos are pre-renovation, however the bones of this once grand old room are amazing. The ‘trompe I’oeil’ painting on the wall is in great condition, the fire… places will require serious work, ridding them of their current introduced heating systems! Especially as the chimneys are in good condition. They will be returned to wood fires! I especially love the englenook off this main room. It even has an ancient stone basin – used by Cardinals back in the 13th Century…more on that later
